OSAT Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Happy Thursday!! This is the 3rd post I have done in 24 hours!! HOLY MOLY!!!! We are back again with the OSAT Blog Hop!! This month our theme is a Birthday Bash! Did you come by way of Dena Rekow? If so and welcome!

After having not one but two shaker card posts yesterday you can imagine that my goal was to NOT do a shaker card! When brainstorming for this month I could have either been really predictable or surprise myself. Well guess what... it was the latter of the two! When was the last time you have seen me A. Sponge and B. Emboss Resist?! Um Never!!!!!!!! I am going to warn you there are 4 pictures but it is because I wanted to be sure you got see all the lovely details!!!

Okay so my color combo happened by happenstance! It absolutely oozes femininity. So I had started sponging with Flirty Flamingo ink onto the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP! You can ink this great paper up with what ever colors you choose. As I stated before I started with the Flirty Flamingo, then moved to Peekaboo Peach. I knew I wanted to transition to a yellow or gold to finish! I chose Delightful Dijon. I wasn't sure it was a good decision but the end product was pretty fabulous! After finishing the sponging I wrapped the 3/8 inch Ruched Flirty Flamingo ribbon around the floral resist paper. I adhered this to a matte of Flirty Flamingo and set it aside. I wanted a sweet little birthday sentiment... Birthday Blooms had the sweetest little sentiment for this card! I stamped it in Flirty Flamingo ink onto Whisper White then adhered it to a Peekaboo Peach matte! My big loopy bow and pearl embellishments were just what I needed to finish this card off!
What girl does not like a purse for her birthday?! I made this great little hand bag complete with a cute little note book and Gold Glitter pen! I really didn't have any DSP to fit the purse or go with the colors. I inked up my Paisley & Posies set with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder! I then began sponging using the Flirty Flaming and Peekaboo Peach inks! The great tag on my handbag is from the Here's To Cheers bundle available in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!

Here is a few more pictures of the purse!! This tag bundle really is to die for!!

Here is the great little note book that goes in the paper purse!

    1. Great color combo!! Love the purse! I need to make some for Christmas gifts!!

    2. Such beautiful projects and it doesn't include a shaker. LOL! Seriously, you are very talented.

    3. Andrea, Gorgeous projects and totally awesome color combo! The purse is adorable and I love that you made a coordinating notepad. I still think you used a whole role of ribbon on that bow... It certainly looks like it! Love it all!

    4. Great, girly colors. And an inspired way to use what I keep thinking of as bottle tags. You should sponge and emboss resist more often.

    5. SO pretty and girly!!! Love the color combo and the super cute bow! Great job :)

    6. Beautiful color combination! Making your own DSP for the purse is adorable!

    7. So soft and beautiful. I love it!
